RFE: User Cases driven improvemens in ‘AI on media’ CUSTOM install mode

Filed under: Other — natiku @ 7:35 am

Recently I saw a request for reviewing Caiman – OpenSolaris Installer technical design documents and there was many questions like “why I see this tech feature there ?”.

Well, if we use a User Cases based verification approach, this type of questions will be obsolete, I will try to demonstrate it on first view only very small change – now you can boot AI Client media and during boot you can in custom mode specify a AI install manifest manually (YES, T.M. You don’t need to have AI install server for just one time installation any more)

Original ‘AI Client User Case Scenario’

Automated Installations inside corporation

AI is booted from network and is OS is installed automatically,
login to AI instance is only debugging case and is used rarely.
Installation is done by system level OS knowledgeable person.

Added ‘AI Client User Case Scenarios’

Feature AI on media (Bootable Live-CD) extend User Cases:

  • Outside of inter company use – AI Live-CD can by used anybody and AI Manifest can everywhere
  • Outside of install scenario – now it can serve a function of Recovery Console supplement
